A frog named Zucchini?
Yes. And, like you, I didn't see it coming this morning either. First, you need a wee bit of backstory on zucchini in general.
Namely, I don't like it. I don't like eating it. I don't think it tastes like anything. And my mom didn't know how to cook all that came outta the garden in the hot windy summers in the East Bay Area.
My childhood zucchini experiences were reliably awful. My mom sliced disks of the squash, boiled in plain water until the inside circle of seeds and membranes were so mushy they fell out of the middles. I choked down a lot of that wretched stuff while growing up.
So, guess what happened this morning?
Two pieces of grilled zucchini hopped into my serving spoon at the fancy supermarket with the hot breakfast bar.
I could have dumped them back in with the mushrooms, onions, and peppers... but I didn't. Truth is, I had already been selectively avoiding lots of pieces of it while I was getting veggies. I went ahead and put them on my plate, paid, and then ate them.
So, WHERE does the frog come in?
Have you heard of Brian Tracy and his advice to "eat the frog first thing in the morning"?
No... not a literal frog.
Consider a "frog" to be a thing you need to do, but don't really want to do.
Brian Tracy is a business and efficiency leader, so, I'm not making it up and it's not random. His suggestion is to essentially get the tough stuff over and done with first thing in your day.
For me, this morning, that "frog" actually jumped onto my plate! And it made me kinda laugh... given the heebee geebees that zucchini... uhm... inspires... hahhaha!
It wasn't really a big thing... but I did eat that frog named Zucchini this morning.
And actually, I DO feel a little better for doing it.
What are the names of your current frogs?
There's plenty of Saturday left - hope you're enjoying it!
